Noles offer DB
"Last year when Coach Mickey Andrews was recruiting Marcus Thomas, he also got to watch film on Tony," Mandarin head football coach Richard Burnoski said. "Coach Andrews told me that they probably were going to offer him. We called Coach Lilly up on the phone and he confirmed the offer."
Other schools that have verbally offered the third team all-state cover-corner are Florida, Syracuse, Maryland, North Carolina State, and South Carolina.
"Tony doesn't want to leave the state and I think Florida State has a good shot with him," Coach Burnoski said. "His father, Tony, played basketball for Florida State in the mid 80's."
Carter, who grew up a fan of Florida State, didn't allow a touchdown and made nine interceptions in this past season as a junior.
What's the secret of his success?
"I'm play with a lot speed," Carter said. ""I have the ability to eyeball the pass and then make my break."
What is the Mandarin high school junior looking for in a school?
I'm looking at academics," he said. "I want to major in business management. I'm also looking for a place that I have a good chance of playing early."
Carter will attend the Florida Nike camp on April 13th. He will also attend this summer the Florida and Florida State team football camps. There's also a possibility that he'll attend camp in Miami.
